Santa Anita: Thursday scratches


There are two late scratches on Thursday's eight-race program. In the first race, for 2-year-old maidens over two furlongs, Mandelieu is withdrawn, leaving a field of seven.

In the fouth race, morning-line favorite Pious David is out of a maiden race, leavivng just five starters.

Conditions are ideal, with temperatures in the 70s and clear skies.
